WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A southeast Kansas husband and wife await sentencing for illegally selling firearms out of their combined beauty salon and gun shop.

Jeffrey and Tracy Eberhart were charged last year with violating federal firearms regulations. The charges stem from sales between 2009 to August 2012 at an August shop called Dream Weavers Salon and Sporting Goods.

Both were scheduled for sentencing Monday in U.S. District Court in Wichita.

Jeffrey Eberhart, a convicted felon, pleaded guilty earlier to selling firearms without a license. His plea deal recommends a five-year sentence.

Tracy Eberhart obtained a federal firearms dealers license, but omitted her husband's name on the application because of his felony record. She pleaded guilty to failure to keep required sales records.

Prosecutors recommended probation for Tracy Eberhart.
